    But poor blacks in DC probably wouldn't.

    Right?

    Hit & Run > When It Comes to School Choice For Low-Income DC Residents, Obama Offers Crumb (And Is One) - Reason Magazine


    This REALLY, REALLY pisses me off. If Obama believes so much in what this particular urban school district is doing, his kids should be attending there. Put your FAMILY where your mouth is, and then we'll all know you're telling the truth. But instead, he's just thrown a biscuit to the powerful teacher's union, and shown us that he's kind of a hypocrite..."Do as I say, not as I do."

    More on this...

    Hit & Run > Reason.tv: Barack Obama & The DC School Voucher Program—The president says he wants to do "what's best for kids." So why won't he save a proven program that helps low-income students? - Reason Magazine

    There's a word for what Obama did to his DC constituents: betrayal.

    He's the fucking president idiot. And when you make the kind of money the Messiah makes, you too can send your kids to private schools.

    The difference is, you want us to pay for your kids to go to a private school that discriminates and probably doesn't pay taxes like Churches don't. Fuck that. You want to send your little kids to private school, pay for it.

    Remember, people like you fought universal education, just like now you fight against universal healthcare. Am I right? Now you realize that you aren't a Republican. If you really were, you wouldn't have a problem affording private school.

    So you are voting outside of your tax bracket. Stop that. Then maybe public schools will be better funded and your kids will do better.

    PS. Public schools are better than private anyways. Don't raise a bunch of private school pussies.

    Interesting, but did you realize that if the DC school district offered $7500.00 to every student there wouldn't even be enough money in their budget for even half of the students?

    Who would get the money?

    I suppose they could give every student $3000.00. Think there are any private schools with a tuition cost of $3000.00?

    i really don't care where his kids go to school....but it is hypocritical to point to republicans or mccain and proclaim, they're out of touch with the common people and then send your kids to the elite of the elite private schools...

    Again, instead of offering real solutions to our economy and to our country, the Republicans just attack everyone else. This IS the party of no. The party of no more elections... as in the Republicans will never be elected to the White House again.

    Can private schools provide a better education than public schools? Of course and that is why those that can afford a private education will continue to to do so.

    The idea that the Obama's should sent their kids to public school with all the inherent issues of safety and security to the First children is just so much blather.

    This is really just a cover for those that want to destroy public education.

    Barack Obama on Education

    Americans voted in Barack Hussein Obama as president of the United States in an election weighted down with the harsh realities of a down-turning economy and two costly wars. Now that the dust is beginning to settle, many Americans are wondering what the new president will do to improve their children's education.

    Throughout his campaign, Barack Obama has said he plans to take a fresh, objective look at the age-old debate over education issues. “A truly historic commitment to education – a real commitment will require new resources and new reforms,” Obama says. “It will require a willingness to break free from the same debates that Washington has been engaged in for decades – Democrat versus Republican; vouchers versus the status quo; more money versus more accountability. And most of all, it will take a President who is honest about the challenges we face – who doesn’t just tell everyone what they want to hear, but what they need to hear.” Where does Obama stand specifically on the most pressing education issues? Here’s our cheat sheet on education according to Obama:

    Quite a mouthful....

    I bet the run down school district could us the 12 million or so dollars spent on this voucher program to make their run down schools better for the rest of the kids who attend. Why don't you look up the number of kids who do not get to go to a private school and have to stay in their under funded public school.
